Sweet Sketch Wednesday with StampFairy

Hi everyone! Today is Wednesday and time for another Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge!  I've been so excited to show you my card today - its a fun sketch and a new StampFairy image and that is just a really good combination!



StampFairy is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  The Grand Prize winner of the challenge will receive 4 free StampFairy images of their choice!  Now who wouldn't want that? Thanks Gerda for your generous StampFairy sponsorship this week!


Here's the fabulous sketch to follow this week. It's another fun layered design that works well with large and small prints and textures.  I do hope you'll give it try : )

I'm using a newly released StampFairy image on my card called Lilly Playing. The collection features Lilly playing with and on a variety of different toys but this one is my favorite. Little Lilly is colored with Copics, including the polka-dots I added by hand. I cut out the image and then mounted it on the oval panel that was colored with the same background color as the image. What results is the appearance that she is "swinging" off the card - nice dimension and perspective.  The papers are new to my stash from the Jillibean Soup "Blossom Soup" collection.

And then for the finishing touch, another handmade flower that fits right in because it's made from the same designer papers.

It is such a wonderful delight to see all the entries we get in response to our sketch challenges each week. We appreciate the support you show for Sweet Sketch Wednesday and enjoy seeing all the amazing works of art you create. Please join us this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
